Managing Your Counseling Program:
Suicide Prevention in Children/Adolescents
in Oshkosh

Goal Setting
• Decrease suicidal behavior in youth by 20% in Oshkosh

• Increase awareness of the rate of suicidal behavior and completion in Oshkosh as well as the social impact of suicidal behavior

• Decrease Stigma associated with suicide in Oshkosh

• Educate teachers and parents about risk factors for suicidal youth as well as be able to identify high risk individuals

• Increase teacher and parent confidence levels, knowledge, and competence on suicide prevention intervention

Decision Making: Models & Program Development
Existing programs: Miami-Dade (Zenere & Lazarus, 2009), Parents-CARE (Hooven, 2013), Frameworks (Baber & Bean, 2009), and Connect (Bean & Baber, 2011)

Best practices for effective intervention adapted from existing programs:

Combined school and parent program

Training to detect signs of risk AND how to intervene

School plus family interventions have spreading positive effects

Include instruction about suicide contagion and stigma
Email survey results to parents, teachers, stakeholders

Through the feedback from the parents, and teachers that attended the workshop in Oshkosh we can use that to modify the workshop for another city.
